Today, I salute my fellow veterans and their families, and thank them for their service to our country. I attended a Veteran’s Day ceremony at Geneva Middle School North this morning – it was thoughtful and touching, and I appreciate the hard work by everyone involved. It was a pleasant reminder of the many reasons I love this country and our freedoms. Despite this unhealthy economy and the barrage of negative news available 24 hours a day, I still believe strongly in our capitalist economic system. I still believe strongly in a low-cost passive investment strategy. I still believe strongly in providing hourly, as-needed financial planning and advice to people from all walks of life.
What should you do during this market turbulence? I can’t stress enough the importance of staying the course and sticking with your long-term objectives. That said, if you haven’t reviewed your financial goals or rebalanced your investments within the last twelve months, we should schedule some time for a financial review. We can discuss your concerns, take stock of your finances, rebalance your investments, and hopefully provide a little peace of mind.
Happy Veteran’s Day!
